"The statement from Trump comes after he was charged in a 41-count indictment along with 18 other co-defendants on Monday. The former president faces 13 charges," the Daily Wire reported.
The indictment also included 18 other people, including Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Mark Meadows and Jenna Ellis.
Trump's campaign called the Georgia charges "un-American and wrong," and Trump said he will be releasing a report backing up his false contention that he won Georgia three years ago. https://t.co/jqgiLO8J2W

"The 2020 election in Georgia was not stolen. For nearly three years now, anyone with evidence of fraud has failed to come forward - under oath - and prove anything in a court of law. Our elections in Georgia are secure, accessible, and fair and will continue to be as long as I am governor," Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp wrote in response.
"The future of our country is at stake in 2024 and that must be our focus," he added.
Trump has until Aug. 25 to turn himself in, according to the court documents.
The indictment is in addition to legal battles Trump faces related to charges in Washington, D.C., for his involvement on Jan. 6, 2021, and a separate case over classified documents found in his Mar-a-Lago home last year.
The multiple legal actions against the former president continue to build but have yet to slow his momentum among supporters. Trump remains the leader in GOP polls in a potential rematch against President Joe Biden next year, defying the charges against him.
